took a lil time yesterday and made up 2 heat shields out of roofing tin for my 850 and 4000 tractors. the oem ones rusted and cracked from vibration... too thin to rewwld.. and solder wouldn't hold over the manifold.. so roof tin it was.

just roughed them out with tin snps and fit them in.. had to make one for my 950 as well as it was a parts amchine and that wasn't a part it had when i got it.. :)

for sure. last time i used the 850 at shut down i hear it boiling well! when i went looking i had noticed the 4000's shield had died too.. though it had not had any gas boil issues. my guess is the disassembly and re assembly last year from doing the valves/ head on her overstressed the heat shield as it had been a tad thin from rust... and it finally let go. all good now
